Hi I wanted to know what can be the risk of getting a birth control shot for the first time just 3 days before you get your period

Hi!
If you were my patient, the only concern that I would have would be to rule out pregnancy.  I would definitely do a test on the same day.  Depending upon your history, there could still be a very slight possiblity that you could be pregnant when the shot was given.  Otherwise, no major risks.
Good luck!
